Many of the sports news apps on Android are either lacking in features or are horrendously ugly. That's why 365Scores is currently storming the charts in Google Play. This app delivers all the news and scores for your favorite teams, and the UI is totally usable.
The app allows you to set your favorite teams so that it can deliver you relevant news. It gets live updated scores and even some video highlights from certain games. Push notifications can also tell you when your team gets a touchdown or your favorite soccer club scores a goal. 365Scores supports nine different sports: Soccer, Tennis, Basketball, Baseball, Football, Ice Hockey, Handball, Rugby and Volleyball.
This edition focuses only on new games. The app roundup is coming up soon.

Android is far from the first platform Todoist has landed on, but fans of the service have been anxiously waiting. Todoist is a clean, snappy to-do list manager that has a ton of cloud features to keep your busy life under control. The app is free to use in basic mode, but the advanced features are gonna cost you.
The main interface in Todoist is just a super-minimalist task list organized in chronologic order. It is still recognizable as Todoist to anyone that has used it on other platforms, but it has enough Holo UI elements that it fits in nicely on Android.
One of the coolest features included in Android 4.1 was the enhanced notifications. If an app supports the feature, you can swipe down and expand the data being shown. Many of the stock apps do this, but third-party developers have been taking advantage as well. Notification Weather offers its own twist on notifications by adding rich weather forecasts to your Jelly Bean device's notification shade.
This app's notification comes in two forms. The first is a single line with the current conditions. The other is a two-line block with the current conditions and a 4-day forecast. You can choose in the settings what units you want, how often it updates, and whether it defaults to the expanded or collapsed view.
The GoPro line of cameras are nifty little devices. These waterproof and shockproof cameras shoot 1080p video at 30fps and are compatible with a whole range of cool rugged accessories. As you film yourself in harrowing situations with a GoPro, you might not have the hands to properly operate it. That's where the new remote app comes into play.
Fire up the app, and you can stream the video output from the GoPro right to your screen. You'll need a reasonably fast Android device, and ICS or higher is recommended. You can also control recording, image capture, and settings all from within the app.
